I want to be able to
mount, say /home/$USER/workspace to /usr/local/workspace.
Right now I'm using the python package pyfilesystem which uses
fuse to do that. My problem is, that inside that mount I am not able to create
symlinks. I don't even need symlinks going outside the mount, but even a symlink that normally is created for a shared library during compilation, will not be created inside the mount.
So I'm either looking for a totally different approach, or a tool (preferably written in
Python) that does exactly what
pyfilesystem is doing and supports the creation of symlinks.
- Using a simple symlink instead of a mount does not work for me as the mounted directory will actually be inside a
- Mounting must not require root privileges.
fstabis not an option.
- Thus using
mount bindis not an option.
